ok, so Cici is now stalking squirrels amidst the hazy skies due to the smoke from the 800+ fires in northern California. She said goodbye to her boyfriend Koda this morning early as he was leaving in the car, he came calling on her yesterday morning, when I opened the door, there he was… so cute.
Anyway, thought I’d let you know that Carson City a few months ago made some of the parks in the area dog friendly and are considering dedicating a dog park to be just for dogs (that will take awhile if it will happen at all)…
The Carson City Parks and Recreation Department has established new dog-friendly park rules, which are being offered on a trial basis. Scott Fahrenbruch, parks director of operations, said people need to make sure to watch their dogs and clean up after them for the rules to work.
For more information, call the Carson City Parks and Recreation Department at 887-2262.

and this info below was from a notice about a meeting about creating a dedicated dog park that they held:
The difference between a dog park and a “dog-friendly park” is that a dog park is exclusively for dogs off leash subject to common rules. Most dog parks also have segregated areas for smaller dogs. Carson City does not have any dog parks, but such parks exist successfully in many other cities.
At the meeting, groups will be formed to work on fundraising, site selection, research of other dog parks, rulemaking and other efforts to support the building of dog parks.
